The new home for Lone Oak Rescue has been under transformation, preparing for the remainder of the herd to come home. There are still 10 horses at the Livermore location, Dulce is expected to go out to her new home this weekend. We are hoping the remaining horses are able to be moved over the next week.
We have been doing a massive clean up of the new property, unfortunately all by hand so is taking some serious man hours. I hope to be making a purchase of a tractor for the rescue complete with all the bells and whistles to make the home ranch makeover faster and easier, in the meantime we are making slow and steady progress. Donations towards our refurbishment of the property are needed, please let us know if you can help.
We do have a round pen set up and will be starting ground work with some of the horses who need further evaluation such as Holly and Lady. We are expecting to have the small arena up on another month or so, right now the horses are enjoying grazing of the area with its 2 foot tall grass cover.
We are starting to see some volunteer inquiries local to the Coarsegold/Oakhurst areas and hope to have many more as the rescue gets up and running at the new location.We are sorry to say we are no longer able to hold volunteer activities at the Livermore location. If you are interested in coming out to the new location and are from the SF Bay or San Jose areas, please contact us as there are some regulars who are making the trip out, we will try and help co-ordinate days.
Computer service is sketchy at times which is limiting the uploads of new pictures, but we are working on it.
We are also doing updates to our site, so please forgive us if one in a while the site is not responding.
Soon we will be starting into our 4th year as a non-profit and we have some such a long ways... I am tremendously grateful for the many hands who have helped us in these past weeks and months and look forward to the rescue doing even more now that we are in a permanent location. I invite all past and future to be a part of Lone Oak in our new home, I look forward to having you join us....
